The far-right attacking the anti-fascists with a hammer, then switching the narratives claiming that the anti-fascists attacked them with a hammer. #Antifa means "anti-fascists." It is not an organization. If you are against fascists, YOU are antifa. #Portland
“Smear campaigns” against #antifa are used to create the image of internal enemy and “scapegoats.” Since Charlottesville, such campaigns against #Antifa became a compulsory exercise for #AltRight, #Kremlin #trolls and #Bots. #disinformation is an important tool in cyberwar.
In 2017, the online campaign used fake #antifa (an umbrella term for anti-fascist protestors) Twitter accounts to claim anti-fascists promoted violence against women supporting Trump or white supremacy. @bellingcat research showed the evidence of campaign orchestration on 4chan.

The far-right and the Kremlin carried out an orchestrated attack on antifa for several years. A good thread by @RVAwonk

“The signal that has been disrupting satellite navigation for planes flying through #Israeli airspace in recent weeks originates inside a #Russian air base inside #Syria, according to data collected by a #US-based researcher.”
“This interference to the GPS reception doesn’t appear to be specifically directed at #Israel, but rather...is likely collateral damage in an effort by Moscow both to protect its troops from #drone attacks & to assert its dominance in the field of #electronicwarfare#Russia

This is Johann #Gudenus. A leading figure in the Austrian FPÖ and most likely the 1st member of a governing party in Western #Europe to send his emails from a mail.ru account - a Russian company with very close ties to the #Kremlin. But there‘s much more to it: /1
Gudenus is the mastermind behind the partnership agreement between the FPÖ & Putin‘s United Russia party, signed in 2016 - which includes a paragraph on Russia helping the FPÖ to draft laws. Also on the picture besides Gudenus: HC Strache, the current Austrian Vice-Chancellor /2
As a student, he lived in Moscow & studied international affairs - but not at MGIMO, which is the standard university for aspiring Russian diplomats. He studied at the Diplomatic Academy of the Russian Foreign Ministry, which also trains Russian spies & special operatives /3

On #Twitter the #GiletJaunes hashtag is more of an #American far right #disinformation campaign. Some of these accounts could be #Russian? I don't know.

#Paris #YellowVest
This network graph was collected using the #GiletJaunes and #YellowVest hashtags on December 2 2018
You can clearly see that the hashtags are dominated by Pro-#Trump and #QAnon accounts.
I have made the #disinformation accounts red and abnormally large.

THREAD on #Russia/n Orthodox Church (ROC) breaking off “eucharistic communion" w/ #Constantinople Patriarchate.
1.CAVEAT: I don’t claim to be an expert in church relations but being Orthodox Christian & working on #Russia-related politics/policies I feel entitled to share few of my own observations esp in the face of mounting ignorance or propaganda from some of the usual "Russia watchers"
2. Within next days you will hear 3 dominating narratives on what came to be called "the new schism":
A.Patriarch Kirill is KGB (somewhat true).
B. ROC is a tool of #Kremlin (true).
C. Conflict emerged as aftermath of “#Russia trying to make #Ukraine submissive” (yes & no)

In the late 80's and early 90's most #Trump headlines looked like this.
By the late 90's and early 2000's it was reported that he had become a billionaire, no longer in debt. Not before filing 2 bankruptcies and announcing many projects that were never built.

🦉🦉🦉Explaining #Kremlin #propaganda technique “political pluralism imitation.” The Russian-state owned and funded mass media has been employing this model in #Russia for a while. Lately, the Kremlin-linked agents are implementing it in the US and other Western countries. 👇
1. In Putin’s Russia, the political discourse is suppressed.
2. Unlike the USSR ideologists, the Kremlin propagandists understand the importance of the public opinion and positive image. “The sublimation of emotions on a political topic” is an important part of the engineered collective mentality.

This is significant because it ties the #NRA operation to the #EndMagnitsky operation, and all by way of #Kremlin’s own @DanaRohrabacher...And to put a bow on top of it, both operations link to @DonaldJTrumpJr and the #TrumpTower meeting. @WendySiegelman 👏

👇🧠⚡Thread on new #InformationWarfare #narratives: Many are wondering about the latest development: #Helsinkisummit, #Putin’s visit, #Trump’s open support of #Russia, etc. Is he insane? No. Russian psychological war manuals are hard to find. The sum up of the latest strategy:
A new strategy: Brainwashing Trump’s base and the rest of the society into whitewashing and normalizing Putin’s Russia. The new narrative is “Yes, Trump works with Putin. It is perfectly normal. Russia is a friend. Putin is good. Thank you, Russia, for helping Trump.”
This is how it is achieved—in the broad daylight. (The silence of the press does not help.)
